For my card this week I wanted to make a Christmas card. When I think of red it is either for Christmas or a card for a man, in this case it could well be for both!

I coloured the image Christmas Fairy with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I created a second layer for the top of the gift box and the hat so I could decoupage them. I then added a further layer of just the bow on the top of the gift box. I use Stickles glitter glue all over the wings and the ribbon and Woodware applique snow for the fur trim on the hat.

The base of the card has been covered with a glitter paper from Imaginisce. I used scraps of gold and black card for the layers and used my Martha Stewart trellis punch for the black layer but only left the bottom of it on show. I added a Papermania glittered self adhesive ribbon and a die cut sentiment from my stash.
